We live in a time when every man is doing that which is right in his own eyes and lawlessness abounds. We see major metropolitan cities collapsing due to their lack of enforcing the law. Retail stores are leaving these areas in droves. It’s going to get worse. To many, the rule of law means nothing in this current day. What about the Constitution? Well, it changes to whatever we want it to say.
Most of us attend church each week with no threat of reprisal. This is not the case in other parts of the world. In recent weeks, Muslim mobs in Pakistan have attacked churches and Christian homes were set on fire. Thousands of Christian families were forced to evacuate including the guest on this Crosstalk.

Throughout history there are examples of oppression against mankind. In each of these situations there are those who didn’t want to create waves. Yet others stood for their cause and impacted the lives of many for the better. One example would be the Revolutionary War and those who plead their lives, fortunes and sacred honor.
